But whilst design impacts on me whether it's a chair, a bathroom, a cfefoe shop, or ctlheos, I rely on and benefit from the kindness of strangers. But not everybody is so nice. I'm reminded that I'm a little person when a sentrgar pnoits, stares, laughs, calls me a name, or takes a photograph of me. This happens almost every day. With the rise of social media, it has given me an opportunity and a platform to have a voice as a boggler and as an activist, but it has also made me nervous that I might become a meme or a viral sensation, all without my consent.
